Okay, I've got to know what you were doing when you happened to discover this, and how this label got flagged. It doesn't appear to be connected to any of your recent grepping (the error came from whoever originally drafted this route accidentally using the name of one fork of the intersecting road instead of the other, not from any deviation from the manual).

I was grepping for cases where Turnpike Rd had been shortened to TurRd. (See also: MT SR210)
Which is fine where it's part of the name, not the road type. I just wanted to see.
There were of course tons of false positives, for Turner Rd etc.
To get a quick-n-easy map of each one, I stripped the WPT lines down to the OSM URLs only, and then tossed them at firefox, opening 60 tabs at once:

for URL in `grep TurRd */*/*.wpt | sed 's/.\+\(http:.\+[0-9]\)/\1\&zoom=16/' | sort | uniq`; do firefox $URL; done

So then you looked at each of those maps to see if the names matched the roads? I'm not complaining; you were correct (I checked KYTC photos since there was no GMSV for the area) but eyeballing all those intersections seems like a lot of work for a small payout.

Yup. Firefox was fired up to point right at each waypoint, at a useful zoom level. Pretty much just had to keep my eyes at the center of the screen and repeatedly hit ctrl+F4.

I was considering renaming the Turnpike Road waypoints on NH US2 & 4, and Old Turnpike Road on US202, and wanted to check in and see how "Tur" vs "Tpk" was handled in similar situations.
(Heh. But look what else I did barely 3 hours earlier...)
Like I've said... my relationship with the project is not always the most healthy one... :)
